A 30-year-old woman was killed and a second young woman was lightly injured following an accident near Yavne on Sunday morning, when one of the vehicles veered from its course amid stormy weather conditions. 

The two vehicles collided on Road 42 near Moshav Ben Zakai, just outside the southern exit of the city of Yanve, rescue forces reported. Paramedics from United Hatzolah, ZAKA and Magen David Adom all arrived to the site to provide medical treatment. The 30-year-old woman died on site, while the second victim was evacuated by Magen David Adom to Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot.

"This was a very severe frontal-side accident, with the driver's side door completely crushed and trapping the driver inside," said Magen David Adom senior paramedic, Menashe Daudi. 

When the paramedics rescued the driver, she was unconscious, without a pulse and not breathing, according to Daudi. While they gave her medical treatment and performed CPR, she succumbed to her injuries and the paramedics had to determine her death on site, he explained.

The driver of the second vehicle was treated for light wounds and evacuated by ambulance to Kaplan, Daudi said.

Shlomo Dvir, a volunteer for United Hatzolah, added that the accident seemed to occur after one of the vehicles deviated from its course due to the road's wetness and stormy weather conditions.

"This is a road known for trouble, and we have been called upon to handle a large number of accidents there in recent years," Dvir said.
